Ben Klock – Being BoiledOktober 31st, 2013
Holy moly. This is exactly how I experienced my last party in Berlin. Music-wise. And audience-wise. The drop at 4:00 is as massive as Techno gets these days in Germany’s capital city!

Dead Bodies Abound On Mount EverestJuni 11th, 2013
If you want the ultimate thrill, you have to take the ultimate risk:
It is estimated that over 200 people have died in their attempt to reach the summit of Mount Everest. The causes of their death vary as widely as the weather at Mount Everest’s peak. Climbers face the dangers of falling off the mountain, tripping into huge crevices, asphyxiation from low oxygen levels, avalanches and falling rocks, and weather that can unexpectedly change drastically in mere minutes. [...] Dead bodies in such a cold environment stay perfectly preserved.
See some of them and read about their history on Altered Dimensions.

Dear Mister FreudDezember 7th, 2012
Dear Mister Freud,
I just consumed another huge plate of shellfish, mussels and fish. It was a very fishy, salty, and succulent experience. Also there was a lot of noise and tongue-work involved. It was amazing. I now have a theory why it was so amazing: Because it was a perfect storm of eating drive and sex drive. Perhaps this insight might be helpful for your further research.
Dave Rastovich in the FreewayNovember 26th, 2012
Once again my past catched up with me when I watched this video of David Rastovich surfing some ridiculously perfect waves: The soundtrack is Shpongle’s Dorset Of Perception from the epic Tales Of The Inexpressible album. Appropriately enough it was Rastovich who said: “Try to explain colour to a blind person or try to explain surfing to someone who never surfed – it’s very similar.”
A-Trak: Don’t Push My ButtonsJuli 24th, 2012
A few weeks ago, Deadmau5 stirred a heated discussion by publishing a both honest and provocative blog post. Inspired by this article, DJ and producer A-Trak makes some very good comments on the current state of the Electronic Dance Music scene in general and the role of the DJ in parcticular:
“As the performance aspect becomes predominant, a paradigm shift is underway. Crowds used to come see DJs for a musical journey. Now they expect to hear specific songs and furthermore, they want to see a show. I can attest to this myself: the craziest crowd response that I get in my sets is when I play my own tracks [...] But one has to wonder, when so much emphasis is put on hit records and mise-en-scène: is there still room for DJ skills?” – Read the full article at Huffington Post
